Tucson Gets New York Times Shout-Out For Nature and Food

Once again, Tucson’s culinary scene has caught the attention of the New York Times.

This time, the New York Times Travel’s Frugal Traveler column posted an article on Wednesday, March 28 highlighting the nature surrounding Tucson along with a handful of Mexican restaurants.

Author Lucas Peterson, who also hosts Eater’s Dining on a Dime video series, highlighted Tania’s Flour Tortillas and Mexican Food, Aqui con el Nene, St. Mary’s Mexican Food, and Guadalajara Original Grill.
